Upcoming Events

This event takes place at Knox College on Saturday, March 4th 2017. The movement classes are from 10-11am and the performance begins at 11:15am. Knox College students are eafer to share what they have learned in dance with the community where they live. A closing discussion will encourage feedback and questions so we can continue to facilitate and celebrate access to dance in our community!
